Authorities have released the name of a woman found dead in the Missouri River last week.

Investigators say dental records helped them identify the body as 40-year-old Jennifer Giles, of Council Bluffs.

The Nebraska State Patrol says Giles was reported missing by her family to the Council Bluffs Police Department on Oct. 28.

They are still waiting for the results of an autopsy to determine how she died.  Her body was found by a trapper north of the Omaha Public Power District power plant on Nov. 23, according to NSP.
